permanent website. Doug Toney from NB Herald-Zeitung seconded the motion. The
motion carried by majority voice vote.

businesses for the area. Rusty encouraged participation from members with committees

the new business park behind Checks In The Mail.

GIS capability coming to New Braunfels & the Chamber by the end of the
year which will allow prospects and local businesses to research sites and
demographics.
